This guide assumes 40-45 kills per hour. Your profit per hour may vary depending on your speed. If you have access to the myths guild your profits would be closer to 1M per hour

Red dragons, found in the Brimhaven Dungeon, always drop dragon bones and red dragonhide (along with many other chance drops), which sell for 3,039 and 2,378 respectively. This makes each kill worth 5,417 coins.

Players who have completed Dragon Slayer II may prefer killing red dragons in the Myths' Guild basement, as they are much closer to a bank alongside ease of access with the mythical cape teleport.

Each trip will last about 20 minutes including banking hides and bones and returning to the dungeon. The best method of banking is to teleport to Edgeville using an Amulet of glory, and return to the dungeon via teleporting to your player-owned house in Brimhaven (requires 40 Construction) via House tab. Otherwise, banking in Mor Ul Rek and running to the dungeon will be very tedious and long. Another method is by using Karamja gloves 3 to teleport to Shilo Village, banking, and returning via the cart to Brimhaven.

Those who've done the whole diary can have access to a shortcut to the red dragons as well as noted red dragonhide with Karamja gloves 4.
